On May 30, 2003, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will vote on a proposed policy to “prohibit the release, feeding or protection of cats” throughout Florida. If this policy is adopted, FWC will kill hundreds of thousands of feral and free-roaming cats in Florida.
In addition, part of the proposal includes opposing “the creation or maintenance of Trap, Neuter, Release programs” and supports trapping and killing cats already neutered and vaccinated and living as part of colonies monitored by caretakers.
FWC’s proposal to eliminate the outdoor cat population and oppose TNR programs means only one thing: the killing of hundreds of thousands of cats. We must act now to prevent this slaughter.
Help educate FWC on the facts about TNR as the most humane and effective method of reducing feral cat populations.
We need your immediate action to save Florida’s feral cats:
By visiting http://action.alleycat.org, you can send an e-mail to the FWC Commissioners asking them to vote against this misguided policy. The cats desperately need help from you!*
*Let the Commissioners know that you won’t support their state with your tourist dollars if they implement this deadly policy! Add your comments by typing in the blank section after the form e-mail. Please act today!
